Barnstoneworth United FC Central Coast is based on a philosophy of providing a safe, supportive environment for men and women aged 18 to 70 to play competitive football and socialise with each other. BUFC Central Coast in 2020 fielded 10 proud teams and in 2021 we are expanding again. We know that playing sport and being part of a team can be a great outlet for people to escape their busy or stressful lives and can help with their mental health and overall well-being. Our aim is to be a club where all members feel supported and welcome, a club that all players are proud to be a part of and who are always respected by our opponents.
